The stirring event of the past week have resulted iu a movement to increase the military strength ol the Hawaiian islands, aud arrautieiueuU ar being made to add to the force now here.

The uieu of the old citi zens' guard will make up two more and there are pleuty of meu available to complete tbe regiment. Tbe principal difficulty at present is a lack of ma terial, There are not enough guns on tbe islands; It is found that nnder the new condi tions of American government, Hono lulu is a very heavy exporter of gold to; the United States, and local financier are thinking of mean to stop such shipments. The exportation are due to the custom-house collection, llouo. lulu baa no money except what oomet from the mainland and the heavy drain, it it thought, will have bad af fects upon the local money market. F.ffoit are being made to take advan tage of a United States law which al lows for the depositing with assistant tieasurers of money for duties to be collected, in such cases vouchers for the cash to be taken by the collect'" here instead of money, As the ca'- deposit at Sau Francisco would be kepi up bv sngar buyers there, this would put an end to heavy go d exportation from Hawaii by tbe customs depart ment. It would also result in saving a considerable turn of money now being laid for cunstant importations of gold, only to bave the gold sent back to the coast. ," , " . . , Trouliln O.or Wage Seal. .
